With the streaming audio revolution firmly under way and leading hi-fi manufacturers releasing music streaming components, it's sensible to ensure all your connections aren't the leaking pipe in your system. The AudioQuest Pearl RJ/E Ethernet cable bridges that gap where audio quality is sure to suffer, the connection from your hi-fi component, NAS drive or laptop PC to your router.
Standard-issue Ethernet cables are fine for transporting a lot of data at very fast speeds, but with cheap plastic connectors and no real thought put into the copper quality the one thing that is bound to suffer the most is audio. AudioQuest's Pearl RJ/E is a directional Ethernet cable made with the same hallmark materials, philosophy, care and attention which made the multi award-winning AQ Pearl HDMI such a roaring success.
At the heart of the cable are Solid Long-Grain Copper conductors, AQ's tried, tested and trusted manufacturing process of drawing through the raw copper ingot at a much slower speed to leave an ultra-smooth surface for a signal to travel. The terminations are an area where signal loss is common, so AQ plate the nickel plugs in a generous plating of pure gold ensuring you'll always achieve a noticeable uplift in sound quality whilst keeping the price agreeable.
